About Book

Book Description
1862. With a biographical sketch by Melville D. Landon (Eli Perkins) and many humorous illustrations. Charles Farrar Browne, writing under the pen name of Artemus Ward, developed a satirical approach that poked fun at his straitlaced contemporaries. In his antebellum columns and letters in the Cleveland Plain Dealer, he gained a reputation as a humorist and a debunker whose pun-ridden, misspelled and ungrammatical accounts made readers, including a war-burdened Abraham Lincoln, laugh. He also became a deadpan-comedian lecturer of renown. The Contents of this volume include: Essays, Sketches and Letters; War; Stories and Romances; To California and Return; The London Punch Letters; Artemus Ward's Panorama; and Miscellaneous.
